Currently Obsessed with: Geocaching

Hi guys! I was scanning the Internet looking for obsessed folks just like us and I found Jamie! I loved this post on her blog, "A Forest Frolic" and asked if I could post it? She said "sure" and the rest is history! I can tell you one thing about Jamie, she is CacheCrazy! Enjoy....

This week: I haven't been to the gym once...I've opted to take little hikes instead...
Geocaching
I've traveled with bugs...

I've given the thumbs up...on numerous occassions...

I've laughed...out loud...all by my lonesome...and still smile when I think of this one...

I've ONLY gotten on the computer to check my Etsy shop orders & to do some research at the library...to find the geocache that was IN THE LIBRARY (how awesome is that?)

I've adventured with friends...

I've become a pro at finding micro caches in parking lots (who knew?)...

And today, I even bought knee-high rain boots to keep in the car (one can never be too prepared), so I can wade through all of these little creeks I'm encountering...

The girls and I have learned local history and played on a train...

I've woken up before the kids on a trip to Great Wolf Lodge, to make a 'coffee-run' and found this one...

If you want to join in on the fun, please visit www.Geocaching.com, but fair warning...it is addicting and F-U-N...a real-world treasure hunting game where players try to find hidden containers [called geocaches] by using gps devices (I use my iphone)!! 
You may learn history, discover something new, enjoy a hike, solve a puzzle, get some fresh air, spend quality time with family and friends, the list goes on...
Please let me know if you've tried geocaching, or might, after reading this post.  If you have tried it...does this obsession ever go away?!? ;)  I'm finding myself thinking of ways to solve the puzzles instead of sleeping, or where the caches might be that I have searched for and haven't found yet, or doing searches for them on every errand I run, tee hee.  Aaaahhhhhh...

Lol you know when you are obsessed with geocaching when you start dreaming of it. A few weeks ago we had a meeting at our local bank with a financial advisor, after a while she asked what hobbies did we have of course i said geocaching and then had to explain it to her and the other lady assistant that was in the room with us. They were going to look up geocaching on the net. A few days later we were in the office when one of the ladies came up to us laughing, she explained that the other lady had googled geocaching at home and landed on a porn site! What i want to know is............. How did she spell gocaching to end up there?

Hahah, laughing at Ann's comment...that is hilarious! Thanks for posting my blog post, it looks great here! I'm sure I'll have many more to come.

Great post - oh boy is it addictive, I live, breath, eat geocaching although a recent illness has curtailed me a little. My kids are furious with me when I go out alone in the countryside, words like "Your an old pensioner, take up knitting or something". It's a drug of fresh air, wildlife and excitement, I need a clinic called geocaching annonamous. NO I DON'T, GET OUT THERE!!

Loved the post. It's obvious that you really do love Geocaching. Yes, it is addictive and the only cure is finding other caches. I did hear that if you infect other people, and they sign up for a username, you'll feel much better. Thanks again and I look forward to reading more posts from you.
